One third of Taiwanese girl group S.H.E Ella Chen is said to be in a stable relationship with her Malaysian boyfriend Alvin Lai. Recently, it was rumoured that the couple would be tying the knot at the end of the year. According to the Taiwanese media, Ella recently took on a makeup endorsement worth NT$8 million (S$340,000).
At the product launch yesterday, the starlet — decked in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired white dress — was complimented for looking beautiful. When probed about her love life, Ella smiled coyly and thanked the media profusely for their concern.
Would she be marrying her boyfriend at the end of the year then?
“I never knew I’m at the same stage as Lin Chi-ling! I keep getting questions about my wedding,” Ella laughed.
A few days ago, Ella uploaded a photo of herself in a bridal gown, which she wore for a magazine spread. A friend then commented, “I’m looking forward to your wedding.”
However, the singer clarified that the picture was taken a long time ago and urged everyone not to read too much into it. She had decided to share it online because she “felt that it was beautiful”.
Ella stressed that she would not be getting married this year and that “if I am, I’ll definitely let everyone know”.
When Ella who is currently endorsing makeup for her boyfriend’s rival company was asked if she had informed Alvin about her decision, the singer said, “I am an independent woman. He wouldn’t intervene.”
